What happened to all the young men?
And the young women too? Those ones get married.
But where have all the young men gone?
Have you not heard, have you not seen?
There is a war in the land.
Which war without the sound of guns, you might ask?
Economic war- the young men are economic warriors, fighting in far off lands; that is what most
I know, but where are our brightest and best?
Funny question- in wars you lose your best men first.
So, would they ever come back or are they the lost generation?
